Originally formed in 2002 as a Helloween tribute band, TRICK OR TREAT soon became a popular live attraction in their home country of Italy. After recording their first demo of original material, they were signed by an independent Italian label, Valery Records. In 2006 they released their first full-length album, entitled “Evil Needs Candy Too”, to critical acclaim. The band then spent the following two years on the road playing over 100 gigs in Europe and the USA. The band released their second album, “Tin Soldiers” in 2009.
Three years later, 2012 proved to be an important year for TRICK OR TREAT, firstly because singer Alessandro Conti was chosen by Luca Turilli’s Rhapsody to be the lead singer on the album “Ascending to Infinity” and secondly, the band released their concept album “Rabbits’ Hill Pt.1,” based on Richard Adams’ novel “Watership Down”.
Four years on, the second chapter, “Rabbits’ Hill Pt. 2” is now finally finished and comes with the news of the band signing a worldwide, multi-album deal with Frontiers Music Srl. The recording sessions for the new album have been the longest the band has ever taken part in and the work with producer Simone Mularoni (DGM) captured all the intricate details of their take on power metal. For this album, the band added huge orchestrations and epic choirs mixed to their usual signature power metal sound, in order to sonically reflect all the epic adventures told through the lyrics. The musical vibes range from acoustic and melodic parts to darker, heavy metal anthems.
Once again on this new album, TRICK OR TREAT had the honor to work with great international guest musicians and friends like Tony Kakko from Sonata Arctica, Sara Squadrani from Ancient Bards and, in the role of the evil general Woundwort, Tim Ripper Owens (ex-Judas Priest, ex-Yngwie Malmsteen).
TRICK OR TREAT are now finally ready to unleash their sonic attack on metal maniacs around the globe! The band was also announced today as part of the line-up for the first ever Frontiers Metal Festival. Full info here: http://www.frontiersmetalfestival.com/.
